The Lyrics

I made this up on the way home from work... I'm a Gen X'er and I'm starting to feel older every day...
Kelly was full of dread
She realized grunge was dead
Her life is such a bore
She's turning 34
She still likes Nine Inch Nails
Goatees and ponytails
What's all this hop hop stuff?
She thinks she's had enough

She used to write a ‘zine
She used to be “da bomb”
She was Riot Grrl
Now she's a playgroup mom
She can't be too edgy, when she's a Gymboree
And her suburban life
Is full of mainstream strife

So bring back Lollapalooza
Slackers, punks and losers
Bring back thrift stores
And coffee
And watching “Friends” on NBC
Her two kids
In preschool
At least they think she's still cool
But she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1995

She loved to watch Pulp Fiction
Memorized every scene
She went into McDonald's
Ordered “royale with cheese”
She rocked out to “Hole”
Read Sassy magazine
A black X on her hand
She was a straight edge queen

Whatever happened to her Doc Martens?
And who the hell is
Jessica Simpson?
When did they cancel
“Ren and Stimpy?”
Whatever happned to “Beavis and Butthead” and “Liquid Television?”

So bring back Lollapalooza
Slackers, punks and losers
Bring back thrift stores
And coffee
And watching “Friends” on NBC
Her two kids
In preschool
At least they think she's still cool
But she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1995

She knows time moves too fast
Britney Spears can't sing she only shakes here a**
She feels so old when watching videos
Please make this stop!
Stop!
Stop!

So bring back Lollapalooza
Slackers, punks and losers
Bring back thrift stores
And coffee
And watching “Friends” on NBC
Her two kids
In preschool
At least they think she's still cool
But she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1995
